As of 1:00 p.m., about 1.5 inches of snow have fallen in the Tysons area today in Fairfax County’s first blast of winter weather of the season, the National Weather Service reported.
The snow, which has now mostly transitioned to rain, has affected a number of local community services.
The McLean Community Center will close at 4 p.m. today due to the ongoing inclement weather.
The Vienna Community Center also announced shortly after noon that it will close at 4:30 p.m., and all parks and recreation classes and programs for this afternoon and evening have been canceled.
In the City of Falls Church, recycling and yard waste collection has been halted for the remainder of the day “due to increasingly hazardous winter weather.” The city says collection may resume tomorrow, or potentially at a later date depending on when conditions improve.
“You may leave your recycling can and yard waste out at the curb if it does not impede vehicle or pedestrian traffic, or will not run off into the storm drain,” Falls Church City said.
If your home is in the shaded area in this map, your recycling and/or yard waste might not have been collected.
Due to the increasingly hazardous winter weather, the City's waste collection has stopped for the day.

Fairfax Connector is still operating normally, but the local bus service says “passengers should expect delays due to deteriorating conditions.”
